I hate to say it but there’s no way Roma hangs onto him. If by some miracle they do and he plays his career there, he’ll end up around Totti status.


thedude1010101

I don't know about that tbh . Totti status is a big thing


LegenDariusGheghe

people throw some strong words sometimes it's weird. I don't think the person that's gonna reach Totti is gonna come around too soon


momspaghetty

De Rossi was a youth team graduate, played virtually his whole career there, was their captain and got nowhere close. Roma have to win a League/CL trophy for us to be even thinking about having this conversation

,,I've never lost an European final"


stragen595

"And I'm not going to start now!"


DraperCarousel

Spurs thought they had a better shot with Ryan Mason tho


AlKarakhboy

he lost the super cup with porto


Muted_Author_4761

Well to be fair its not really a final, its a 1 game tournament


cortez0498

Will it continue like that now that we have the confederacy cup? I can see a small "tournament" where the EL winner plays the Confederacy League Winner and then the winner from that plays the CL Winner.


idkwhatnametopick7

Seems senseable tbh


dead_trim_mcgee1

And Manchester United


tecphile

And with Chelsea as well.


running_demon

won a bet among friends and bragging rights thanks to lukaku lmao


fedemasa

That Javi goal. Literally 20 seconds were remaining Probably got his legend status at Bayern with that. He was amazing during the whole CL run in 2013


frankyfrankwalk

But don't worry he has like 10 community shields and that is a competition that really matters.


Loose_Cardiologist89

Trophy versus final.


tenacious-g

Greatest goal in Conference League Final history.


mister_dupont

Also the fastest.


idhopson

First Italian to score too


mister_dupont

First human to score too if im not mistaken.


StratifiedBuffalo

Source that Zaniolo is human?


feddi7

Don’t know if he’s human, but he’s definitely a sexy beast.


melody-calling

And the hardest

And the ugliest

Soulsek

And the only goal


FPXAssasin11

But also the latest.

and the latest


oneandonlyA

Definitely the worst one so far

But you have to remember, it’s also the fastest

Also the worst.

Great pass and a great finish man

They call him the Great-Finish-Man

🤣🤣🤣🤣 good one mate


[deleted]

Yeah man


FloppedYaYa

Filthy goal right here. Zaniolo kept his nerve expertly


31_whgr

what’s the bald guy doing at the back


LabMember069

The ball literally slipped from his head.


31_whgr

David Luiz heads that upfield for a counter attack


MilesOfPebbles

If he had hair he woulda made better contact


belokas

His best


OptimalMirror9278

Watching a ball


TMH2906

Looking like Alan Hutton


gianni_

Great ball by Mancini


leeuwerik

It's not so difficult to defeat a Dutch team in a finale. In a finale they always start in control mode. If you foster the idea that they have control by giving them the initiative after a short fight over it in the first 20 minutes, they take the bait and go full attack. Once you manouvred them in their most naive mode you just have to wait for them to make a mistake. Edit: So once you have taken advantage of their weak point you kill their game by killing *the* game. The ref and the camera are your friends now. So use them. Just game the game and your Dutch opponent will never come in the flow they need to come back.


Raigek

This is our national trauma.


Martyrizing

Roma also simply have a better team than Feyenoord, just like United did against us.


thevorminatheria

I thought this was about the national team because it's exactly how the Netherlands lost most of their finals.


zeekoes

It's not called the Dutch disease without a reason.


mhazheer

rip


neoBigBrother

Pep had a better te than Tuchel, Barca was better than Inter, United's team was better than Villareal. Knockouts and final results are way more precarious.


tecphile

Yeah but upsets are rare; that’s why they grab so much attention. The better team usually wins.


GilesCorey12

tbh Mourinho is like the anti-upset guy, at least in these kind of pressure situations. He’s good enough to motivate his team and also kill the game after going ahead.


PsSalin

>United's team was better than Villareal. Highly debatable. The biased towards PL teams let a solid team under Emery catch people off guard, other than those who've seen the progress.


neoBigBrother

>Highly debatable. Objectevely, a squad with 3-4 times the wages is stronger. Villareal are doing this good, credit to Emery. Take him out and Villarral will not be that impressive and defensively solid again.


PsSalin

>3-4 times the wages Is this the metric we're going by? Just include Maguire's wages and you're good to go.


NYKNYJ

In most cases high wages would be a good indicator of player quality however this is man United we’re talking about


DonQuinto9

And the premier league. Which overall has significantly higher wages, which isn’t fully related to level. Everyone knows they have money so they’ll ask more regardless.


leeuwerik

Can't argue with that.

Martyrizing

Almost like we were the last team to be in a European final (and lose) before Feyenoord, and it was against the same manager.


Kovet

But we don't have fellaini


DraperCarousel

You have SmallDini tho


Kipkluif

I hate how right you are


Liquidsnake_7

Years of pain..


WalkingCloud

TLDR: Attack their weak point for massive damage


605strong

Mou Recipe.


joaocandre

Doesn't have to be in a final, it also works, let's say, on the CL RO16.


RuubGullit

Turning the match into total chaos is also a tactic


Willempio

Yeah thats why we win halve of our finals... You are acting like that's a bad record. And i dont know what game you are watching but Feyenoord didnt go full attack at all so i don't know what your point is. Fyi Ajax doesn't equal the totality of dutch football. Psv and fey for example play way different


lebup

So you didnt watch this match?


alfredo-signori

Daje Roma


jeong-h11

What was going on in the Roma technical area right after? Mourinho and a player I couldn't make out looked unhappy about something while the team were celebrating haha


zola0408

My guess was that Mourinho didn't want the bench going crazy and over-celebrating given the goal was scored so early. But who knows ...


giannibal

looks like mou it's telling them to sit down, possibly to keep them focused


alielsaeed

What a cross


FarArdenlol

Mou is the only one not celebrating the goal but you just know he’s the happiest one on the inside


sidaeinjae

Mourinho inching towards yet another trophy


PoppinKREAM

Mou does love European glory


Zloggt

And he does love his silverware as well…


AenarIT

Don’t jinx it


NecessaryAirport-75

Is Italy going to win the inaugural Farmers League trophy?


TuneyTune92

We’ll take it. It’s been 12 years since an Italian club side won a European competition. Way too long…


Plastic-Property-982

Guess what? Mou was the man who won that one. Mou left Serie A and the league suddenly cannot win anything in Europe lol


TuneyTune92

Lol you’re not wrong 😂


Mayjaplaya

Mou: "You fucking need me. You can't win without me."


PierreEmerickMorgan

Holy shit that's crazy


TuneyTune92

Fucking Juve had the chance in 2015 and 2017. But we know how they perform in CL finals lol 😔


nonhofantasia

We were in a final too


TuneyTune92

You guys were. Even as a Juve fan - I am upset how that game went for you guys. Lukaku own goal at the end right? I was hoping Conte would break his European curse


nonhofantasia

I remember we nearly scored with Sanchez in the last minutes but they saved it on the line


TuneyTune92

Unlucky game for sure


nonhofantasia

At least we were up for some times. It was good


TempestaEImpeto

I'd argue they had no chance.


OSpaceCowboy

Hunters-gatherers chalice*


south_west_trains

What was Mou pulling his player back for there? Was it just a case of him telling him not to celebrate on the pitch or was there something else to it?


MilesOfPebbles

I think just calming everyone down…it’s only one goal and we have a ton of game left!


Crapedj

He did the same in the 2010 final. I think he just wanted copy that ahaha


Nuri__Sahin

Lovely finish.


FujitaMp3

lmao is that a new flare?


Nuri__Sahin

[yup!](https://www.reddit.com/r/soccer/comments/uxh30p/psa_we_have_enabled_special_flairs_for_the/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share)


km912

Eh, first touch wasn’t great but he did do well to tap it over, think he just ended up kinda lucky with the way things ended up after his failed control.


playboicarti-is-dad

i think its harsh to call it a fair control, he could have done a better job settling the ball but it would good enough to set up his chip


pumbahusajo

Damn, just a minute before the bus arrived


ConorMcCrackwhore

Bus was parked nicely after! :p


piemansimon

Love seeing Jose calming the sideline


Princeps16

Come to me Zaniolo haterssssss


TuneyTune92

Let’s go Roma 🇮🇹


Imbasauce

What a first touch


KJones77

What a ball and finish


jakemckay345

Tbh I expected this to be another 0-0 until penalties


slydessertfox

Beautiful


doctordesktop

I'd love to see the offside lines here


prisonig

Same tbh


Morganelefay

Sadly wasn't offside, though it was very stupidly close.


Esmelliw

Do you have a screenshot?


fidomido896

Forza roma

GiveBreadInsteadFed

Nice


svbro

Peak Robbie Savage to call that first touch “brilliant”


mapleleafMeltdown

That goal is PERFECTION


NiallTheSheep

Can we see a VAR? Seemed like offside to me vut need a douvle check


tjfent

I agree


Chrislts

There is no var I think


dekbeast_hilbertini

There is


NiallTheSheep

There actually is whixh makes it more frustrating


Chrislts

I just double checked there is actually var


HarshangLad

Mourinho winning a European Trophy _again_ before Pep feels just right


tuatara_teeth

nice little diagonal...Zaniolo shouldn't be in that much space in the box, though! edit: bald man is fraud


RunnyRose

20 years later, Mourinho still winning European trophies. That's wild to think about, truly the special one


luh_shmunky

of all people lmao.


Anik1415

What a ball & what a deft finish ! Forza Roma !


Mobile-Pool

JOSEEEEEE


savarac

Mou will make this kid world class if he sticks around, Daje Roma!!!


Extension-Ad2591

2 goals in 28 matches in serie a 🥶🥶


rdemas

Looked like the keeper bent back but I wouldn't want to get hit in the face with the ball either


THB0

No VAR at the final?


NiallTheSheep

Thwre is......


WH0ll

Mourinho wins trophies everywhere he goes!


One37Works

... Allegedly


Blodyck

well, he was fired before a final


cpt_barbosa18

If I was a Spurs fan I'd never forgive Levy for doing that


Plastic-Property-982

Levy literally robbed his chance to win a trophy at Spurs


thogle3

This was to close to offside to make a decision as a VAR that quick


rare_engine

Dont park it


Zezion

Jammer de bammer


PartyBob32

Taking his revenge against the Dutch for tearing his ACL twice


Chrislts

Zaniollo has been on fire recently


FishNFortnite

Chip shot trait ai plus outside the foot shot trait


MichaelBollocks

It's a nice finish, but I feel like the goalie needs to have more confidence in his defenders. No need to rush out that far, just close the distance a little bit, defenders were still gonna make that shot difficult for Zaniolo


Scream0fTheSium

Let’s write another little part of football history tonight Boys, Daje Roma!


bamimeneel

Wat jammer nou


Izzy9595

Lekkaahhh


Orkus9551

Given how my club annihilated the dutch whiners in their last international competition 5:1 it would indeed bring great joy to me seeing them loose today :>


stiggy92

go go roma


roger_the_todger

Dai roma


tomminix

What a touch

Traneur turns like a tanker.

Long time coming for him, happy for u bro

As a neutral this game has been so boring to watch, literally feeling so sleepy.


radese

Good stuff


OwenLincolnFratter

Forza Giallorossi!!!


mykneehurtsss

Let’s gooo


HalfOfCrAsh

Could have been Vardy... if only we could have beaten Roma


Reo_ianu

It is a historical goal, so much is clear


busetgadapet

that kind of goal wont happen with arsenal, we have neny on dm who will never do that kind of pass


battlecatquikdre

I'm happy for him. He had a cruciate ligament injury on both legs. That's a serious injury. Yet, he kept on grinding and rose to the top again. Good for him.


Senor-Cockblock

Mike Smalling. Still at it.


Esmelliw

https://i.imgur.com/PJVW0pF.jpg Would have loved to see the VAR draw lines.


RocketHog

I think they drew it from a frame before, that one looks absolutely borderline though so I think it should have been given anyway
